WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE STAND FOR

BEAUTY MEET COMFORT, COMFORT MEET BEAUTY

BIRGIT & KENNA

OUR FOUNDERS

We’ve been friends for over fifteen years. For eleven years we worked side-by-side at Roxy, Birgit as the global head of design for footwear and Kenna as the head of marketing, both within the surf lifestyle company Quiksilver. So our worlds intersected often with marketing events, press tours, etc. But it was our common trips to the company restaurant and our love of tuna sandwiches, "Have’a" chips, and a slightly unnatural addiction to iced tea that bonded us, and from there we grew into tried-and-true friends.

WE KNEW WHAT WE WANTED

We wanted a shoe that was instantly comfortable, aged beautifully, crafted with care and had a molded arch so we could travel with it around the world (or just our day!) and still look feminine and stylish.

Well we had NO IDEA that it would be such a challenge! What most people don’t realize (including us at the time) is that truly 100% leather footwear is quite rare in the market. Now try to add a molded arch AND make it feminine and NOT clunky. It was a challenge to say the least.

EIGHT TRIPS TO MEXICO

A FORTY-EIGHT HOUR PROCESS TO MAKE EACH PAIR

And a lot of sweat, laughs, and tears...

We are so proud of the footwear we've created. We take such pride in each pair that we put in the market. You'll find that our shoes are not only comfortable (they will begin molding to your feet within hours of wearing them), but also timeless and beautiful.

We create footwear that we hope will still be in your closet in 10 years, collecting memories all along the way.

OUR CAUSE

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), 15.9 million children under 18 in the United States live in households where they are unable to consistently access enough nutritious food necessary for a healthy life.

When we were in our first year of the brand we became intimately aware of this growing childhood hunger challenge in the United States, due to a friend’s experience with fostering children. We had already decided that we wanted to support a charity with our new brand and we were now set on finding a way to assist in this fight against hunger, especially with kids.

EVERY PAIR MAKES A DIFFERENCE

GIVING BACK

We did some research and came across the Kids Cafe Program under the Feeding America National organization. We had the opportunity to tour two of these programs. They brought us to tears.

The thought, care and respect that goes into these programs blew us away. We met with the head of philanthropy at the Second Harvest Food Bank (our local Feeding America member) and had a simple question: how much does it cost to feed one child for an entire day within this program? And that is what we settled on. For every pair of beek shoes sold, we donate the equivalent of five meals for a child in need in our community.

We hope you can help us in this fight against childhood hunger, because no child should go to bed hungry.
